Changing Hats

For the remainder of the abortion discussion I'm going to take off my hat of relativism and place my hat of righteousness. As far as that goes I agree with the formula for calculating cost benefit analysis as a goal for humanity, as Dr. Clam replied. However, I came up with a figure of $2.5 Million as a value that in developed countries is used for cost/benefit analysis. Dr. Clam seems to have rejected this value as at least an order of magnitude too high - However, in a number of different ways I can demonstrate this to be the value we use and voters vote in a way which backs up this value. I am not sure if he is contending that we value life too highly in the western world, or whether my value is not the relevant one.
